“Health care workers have 3 special ethical responsibilities,” Dr. Caplan said. “One is protect the vulnerable, people who are really at risk of a disease. Secondly, put patient interests for first. It doesn’t say, ‘put your choice first.’ Third, they’re supposed to do no harm.”

Quoted @kenvogel

Kudos to @GoLocalProv for asking @SenWhitehouse (an outspoken critic of systematic racism) about his decades-long membership at the all-white Bailey’s Beach Club in Newport, Rhode Island — which has a roster of affluent members from Newport, Palm Beach & New York. https://t.co/s1nPos2bMf

UPDATE: @SenWhitehouse's staff says the beach club "has had & has members of color," & "has no such restrictive policy." They didn't answer questions seeking specifics, nor why he said the club is "still working on" accepting people of color, "& I’m sorry it hasn't happened yet" https://t.co/YWWWwlRlTo
